Whoever saw Shikli yesterday whining about "Ovda" understood that this is a wonderful time to be an idiot - voila! culture


The Minister of the Diaspora complained yesterday in the "Ovda" studio that he did not receive the "right of equality" in front of Mandelblit. Shikley believes that the right to equality probably implies that he can be the ombudsman

It's a wonderful time to be an idiot.

If once stupid sayings like "a light bulb will light up Ramat Gan" would become supertemporal icons of stupidity, today there is such an inflation of idiotic emissions that it is no longer possible to remember them all.

The stupidity went through several incarnations before it got here.

Initially, he went through the process of being "cute" (from the word "cute") in the main media channels, in reality shows that turned ignorant contestants into graceful ones.

After that, a culture took root in which there is no longer any sanction for stupidity, and what's more, calling a person stupid has become an act of "arrogance".

Finally the stupid upheaval was completed with the establishment of the current kakistocracy.

Today the idiot is not only not ashamed, he demands rights.

If once upon a time when you were not accepted to a pilot course the problem was with you, today the problem is with the pilot course.

If today it is determined that you are not suitable to be a doctor, because you are unable to memorize concepts in anatomy, the problem is in the organs of the body,

The world is not only required to pass accessibility to idiocy, it is required to bend itself so that the ignorant gain full equality with those with expertise.

Thus, today everyone is an expert in everything even if he is not an expert in anything, and we are required to accept his opinion and discuss it seriously, as if it was given from the mouth of a professor.

And hence grew the contempt for expertise.

And so it turned out that Amichai Shikli was sitting in Ilana Dayan's studio opposite Avihai Mandelblit, and when the latter tries to imply that it is the former who should let him speak because he understands a little about the subject, Amichai Shikli cries out "But where is the right to equality now?".

Well, if Amichai Shikli understood anything about the right to equality, he would have known that one of the equality tests established by the Supreme Court (make noise!) includes the question of "relevant diversity".

In other words, if there is a difference between two people that is relevant to the question of the application of the law, then there is no place to compare them regarding the application of this law.

In other words, in legal matters there is no equality between Mandelblit and Shikley, because Mandelblit was the ombudsman, and Shikley is just a person who writes on Twitter. But no, Shikley believes that the right to equality probably follows from it that he can be the ombudsman.

Because expertise is no longer important.

This is not the question for them, who is an expert and who is not.

"The majority of the people chose, so what? The majority of the people are stupid?"

well yeah.

Most of the people are not expert lawyers (despite the shameful inflation in bad institutions that offer legal studies).

The people do not understand the laws.

That's why he needs an expert to determine for him.

The people do not understand bonds, therefore they need the Governor of the Bank of Israel to make decisions for them.

The people don't understand military strategy, that's why they need a Chief of Staff to tell them what to do.

Once Ben Gurion said, "Every Hebrew mother should know that she entrusted her son's fate in the hands of commanders worthy of that." This government wants to erase that sentence. There is no need to be worthy. There is no need to learn, to be educated, to have rights, to judge. No. Everything goes. The

old motto has been replaced. From now on, every Hebrew mother will know that she entrusted her son's fate in my hands...well, just another fool.
